Shockwave therapy for Calcifying tendinitis shoulder - DRHC Dubai

Calcifying tendinitis of the shoulder, also known as calcific tendinitis or calcified tendonitis, is a condition where calcium deposits form within a tendon of the shoulder, often causing pain and stiffness. These deposits can vary in size and location within the tendon.

Treatment for calcifying tendinitis of the shoulder typically begins with conservative measures aimed at reducing pain and inflammation and promoting the resorption of the calcium deposits. These may include:

Rest and Activity Modification:

Avoiding activities that aggravate symptoms and giving the shoulder time to heal.

Ice Therapy:

Applying ice to the affected area can help reduce pain and inflammation.


Over-the-counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen or naproxen, can help reduce pain and inflammation.

Ultrasound Therapy:

This therapy uses sound waves to generate heat and promote healing in the affected area.

Physical Therapy:

A physical therapist can provide exercises to improve range of motion and strength in the shoulder, as well as techniques to reduce pain and improve function.

Shockwave Therapy:

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) has been proven to be a highly effective treatment option for calcifying tendinitis of the shoulder. By utilizing targeted shockwaves, ESWT is able to break down stubborn calcium deposits within the tendon, providing relief from pain and promoting the natural healing process. This innovative therapy not only targets the root cause of the condition but also helps improve overall shoulder function and mobility. Considered a non-invasive and safe procedure, ESWT offers patients a promising solution to effectively manage and treat calcifying tendinitis.

Our expert team specializes in using focal shockwave treatment to target and break down calcium deposits in the shoulder tendon, providing precise and effective relief from pain and promoting natural healing. With years of experience and advanced training in shockwave therapy, our team is dedicated to delivering personalized care and optimal results for patients suffering from calcifying tendinitis. Trust us to provide the highest quality of care and expertise in focal shockwave treatment to help you regain mobility and function in your shoulder.

Corticosteroid Injections:

Injections of corticosteroids may be considered in cases where conservative measures have not provided relief.

In cases where conservative treatments are not effective, more invasive options such as needling procedures, where the calcium deposits are broken up using a needle, or surgery to remove the deposits may be considered. Seeking guidance from a healthcare provider is crucial for obtaining an accurate diagnosis and developing an appropriate treatment plan for calcifying tendinitis of the shoulder. It is essential to explore all available options and work closely with medical professionals to determine the best course of action for your specific condition. Your well-being and recovery are paramount, and a personalized approach to treatment can lead to successful outcomes and improved quality of life.
